For this cupcake, I used my safety net of Pillsbury Moist Supreme Devil’s Food Cake Mix, and added a cup of NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Peanut Butter & Milk Chocolate morsels into the batter.  Once cooled, I topped it with the peanut butter cookie dough frosting.  We can call it a Death by Peanut Butter cupcake (until I can think of something better).
